London, Feb 3 (ANI): Following in sister Kate's footsteps, Pippa Middleton is reportedly in a serious relationship with a mega-rich Earl.
The man in question is her old flame George Percy, heir to the Duke of Northumberland.

After studying geography at university, with a specialism in renewable energy, the energetic earl recently set up in business and is poised to drill the first commercial geothermal well in Country Durham.
